A lot of anglers fish the Jacksonville Beach pier. On Tuesday, someone caught a 15-inch flounder.
Pretty good size, but nothing quite like this: Look at this Pacific halibut: a 231 pounder that took 45-minutes to real in.
Dirk Whitsitt, a construction worker from Kansas, caught the fish of a lifetime only an hour into his first fishing trip in Alaska.
The captain of the boat offered him a 250-dollar voucher for another day of fishing if he would throw it back.
He said no thanks.
